Character Interview: Claire Connolly – The Sight (Devil’s Isle #2) by Chloe Neill {Tour} ~ Giveaway


Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Claire Connolly from The Sight.  
Hello and Welcome Claire!

For those readers not familiar with you, would you please tell us a bit about yourself?

Sure! My name is Claire Connolly.  I operate Royal Mercantile in New Orleans’ French Quarter–or what’s left of it.  I’m 24, and I’ve lived in New Orleans all my life.  I’m one of the few humans who stayed behind after the paranormal war. Because if we leave, there’ll be nothing left of New Orleans. And that’s not something I’m willing to live with.

Do you have any special strengths? Weaknesses? Skills?

*Looks around* It’s not common knowledge, or else I’d be locked into Devil’s Isle with the rest of the Paranormals. I’m a Sensitive–I’m sensitive to the magic that slipped through from the Beyond when the Veil between our world and theirs was split. That magic gives me power–the ability to move things by telekinesis.

What is one thing you wish other people knew about you?

I wish they understood more about Paranormals, about the history, about the magic, about the war in the Beyond that brought Consularis Paras to our world without their consent.

Are you currently in a relationship? How is it going?

No. I’m single, and it has to be that way.

Last what do you think of your author?

*Laughing* That’s a conflict of interest, isn’t it? She created me, and controls what I say, so I guess I can’t say anything that’s not flattering. In seriousness, I guess she’s alright, but I do wish she’d ease up on New Orleans a little.

Thank you Claire for taking a moment to speak with us today!

Thanks for having me today!



The Sight 

(Devil’s Isle #2)

by Chloe Neill
August 16th 2016
The Sight

The paranormal war that engulfed New Orleans seven years ago is over.  But the battle for the city is just beginning . . .

Claire Connolly is a Sensitive, infected with magic when the Veil that divides humanity from the world beyond fell. Magic can easily consume and destroy a Sensitive, and if Claire’s secret is discovered she’ll be locked into the walled district of Devil’s Isle along with every other Paranormal left in the city.

Bounty hunter Liam Quinn discovered Claire’s secret, but refused to turn her in. Together they saved New Orleans from the resurgence of magic that nearly destroyed it. But now a dangerous cult is on the rise, and it will take both Claire and Liam—and magical allies within Devil’s Isle’s towering walls—to defeat the occult threat before magic corrupts them both…

I love the Chicagoland Vampire series by Chloe Neill. One of my all time favorites. While it’s hard to know that series is ending, I’m also excited to get into this new series, which I will be soon. Thanks for the added chance of winning. 🙂
